I heard you!

L O U D & C L E A R! I will not be changing my blog name. Promise. Actually it was so wonderful to read all your comments and learn that you love my blog's name, the images and feelings it evokes. That is what I attempted to do and I guess I succeeded.

You all had a lot of other great things to say about my blog's layout and hearing that you can navigate around easily was a good thing. A good thing indeed. The header still isn't what I want and it will most definitely be getting a makeover soon. The rest....we'll have to wait and see how I feel about it once the new header is done.

Ann had some terrific thought producing comments, about what I want from my blog and the direction I want to take it in. While I only started it to blog about my quilting life and keep it separate from my personal family blog, I do see the day when I'd like to take it to the next level. 

Sponsors? I'd love to at some point but I don't know how to do that. Making money from my blog isn't my goal but if I could at least get some fabrics once in a while to help keep my budget in check or products to review, that would be cool.  Drawing isn't my cup of tea so I don't ever think that I'll be designing fabric but never say never. It would be ultra cool to make a quilt to be displayed at market one day. I'd probably feel as if I had died and gone to heaven!

I do have a tote bag pattern tutorial drafted and hope to be able to actually make one up soon so that I can share it with you. It's definitely different from most of them available and has a specific purpose so keep tuned for that. There is also a series of very unique blocks in my idea notebook that I might do as a Block of the Month series. Again, I need time to work on it. 

Ann also shared a link to a list of best blogs as compiled by Quilters Home Magazine so I'll be checking those out to see what I like and don't like about them. I'm sure I'll find loads of ideas to try out here.

So Quilts From My Crayon Box will remain Quilts From My Crayon Box but I hope in time that it will look even more wonderful and will bring loads of new readers to follow along on my adventures.
